carley: fox news alert, check is almost in the mail come millions of americans affected by the outbreak do to get cash from the federal government. rob: assuming it makes it through the house. if it qualifies, how much will you get? joining us, jean marks. we appreciate it, we will start with a broad summary. the max that people will get and a lot of people, go through this. >> reporter: good morning to both of you. you can expect to get a $1,200 check as long as you're making less than 75,$000 a year. if you are a married couple that amount doubles, you get $2,400 check as long as you're making less than 150,$000 a year. if you have children and are
under those limits you get $500 additional for each kid. those are the broad stands and what you can expect to receive. >> people will get less if they make above a certain amount. can you break that down? >> sure. if you go over 75,$000 individually or go through over 150,$000, i won't talk about head of households, individuals are married for now, your check goes down it will go down by $50 for each $1,000 over that amount. ultimately if you are making 99,$000 or more as an individual or 198,$000 or more as a married couple he will not be getting any check at all. >> let's put that up on screen so people can visualize it, the
phaseout beginning with 75,000, once you get the 99,000 you are not getting any money but you will get some from 7599, it dwindled down and for married couples 150-198. let's go to the next want to give a couple examples so if you're a single person in this country making less than 75,000, no kids, you'll get $1,200 and then one more on my side, significant making 90,000, you're in that zone where your phaseout a little bit you will get $450 and less as you get closer to 99,000. >> exactly right. if you're making 90,$000, 15,$000 more than the phaseout, your amount is going down by $50 in extra income, that is the calculation. it lowers the amount from $1,200. >> a married couple with two kids, $500 per kid making less
than 1000, 150,$000, you get a lot of money, $3,400. is that many going directly into people's bank accounts, can expect a check, when will they get the first payment? >> great question. for starters the government is going to try to do as much as they can buy direct deposit because it is the quickest way to do it but if you don't have direct deposit you are going to get a check. now taxes will be taken out and it will be a nontaxable payment. the government is saying, steve mnuchin saying it should take -- just 3 weeks, most of us think it will take a little longer. you should probably expect it in the next month or so. that is quicker than it was in past government bailouts. you are looking at a month or so to get that money in your hands. >> what about people over 65?
what did they get? >> they will get a check as well. the biggest issue you have with people over 65 and lower income people is the government will be doing this calculation based on your tax return so if you file your tax return in 2019 that is great, if not they will basic based on 2018. some people lower income don't have to file tax returns, some retirees don't have to file tax returns which makes it a little more complicated but the over 65 people if you're getting payments for social security administration the government will be using that data to calculate what you should earn and get the check to you that way. >> getting money and people's pocket so we can keep spending, thank you so much for breaking that down. a good one for people to know. >> one medical school wants to

>> your typical weekly trip to the grocery store is appended by social distance and supporting, the average 41 minute trip is a test for those under lockdown so millions of americans are trying to cut back in stock up and do this less often. which items should be on your list? diane hendrix joins us with her pics and a whole bunch of stuff in front of her in the kitchen. let's start with the pantry, what should people die, the dry goods in the pantry? >> bedrooms last the longest so those of the things you want on hand. i want you to look for the most nutritionally dense products, and things you can use to make a variety of meals so everybody doesn't get bored. beans, broth, chicken broth, bouillon cubes, canned goods
like tuna, old tomatoes, peanut butter, always been a pantry staple and it is fantastic and if you need something quick that is nutritionally dense, peanut butter is a good thing to hand have on hand, dried grains and pasta and things like that to make bread if you need it, those are the key pantry staples to have on hand. >> and they last a long time. the point is we are talking about people don't want to go to the grocery store because it is where everybody is going and is a germ thing, it is not the cleanest place to go. >> absolutely. make a list because especially with what is going on you want to get in and out. i have disposable wipes that i
use, inside out in the garbage can when i'm done, some and sanitizer. >> you are seeing plexiglas in some grocery stores to give a divide between these pork issues that have to work around all these people all day long so it is an issue. let's talk about the frigid freezer items, stuff that needs to be called, what would you suggest? >> i have a show that airs on roku and amazon and i'm finding right now it is appurtenant topic. people may not have used their freezer to full capacity and i'm happy to share tips on how to do this properly. just about everything can be frozen if you know how to do it. all of these things like fresh vegetables, everybody wants fresh vegetables. anything you buy fresh you can freeze but one of the things, this has lines in it but what i
have is parsley, you pick up things at the store, how to clean them. may extend your produce lifelike you can't imagine. this part is over a week old and mushrooms, you can get a next or week out of mushrooms by putting it in these bags. every time you hold onto them they will get probably another week and then turn around and take is parsley, chopped it up. put it in ziploc lags dad bags and put it in your freezer. rob: let's talk about one more thing real quick, shelflife. how long this stuff in my pantry or freezer, how long is it good for. we will pull up 3 to 4 months for peanut butter, a year for greens and pasta, 6 months for
flower, this one surprised me, a year or two for frozen meat, fish and poultry. i would have thought that would get freezer burn and be no good anymore but that is how long it lasts. >> the key is to do it properly. you can freeze things relatively indefinitely but it loses quality but you won't get sick. it is all about how you freeze it. reason properly like grilled chicken and hummus. rob: thank you for emptying your entire kitchen on the counter for us. carley: you learn something every day, 26 after the hour thousands of americans are overseas but this morning new hope to bring them home. we are live with the new effort launched by the state

home and shutting down, is buying time and reducing the pressure on health systems but on their own these measures will not extinguish epidemics. >> you heard from the world health organization asking everyone around the world to stay home and that the virus pass, the develops, as the us state department is working to bring americans home who are stuck abroad as a result of travel restrictions, close to 5000 americans stuck in peru. lawmakers including marco rubio pressuring the state department to take action immediately as the white house says donald trump will host a videoconference of g 20 leaders in an effort to get on the same page as countries around the world. we expect lockdowns like we are seeing in israel and across europe to extend into the weeks to come.

authorities are turning to drones to keep their distance and keep a safe. >> her to explain how this technology is used across the globe, former military intelligence analyst and thrown expert brett velicovich. a lot of people wouldn't think of a drone at a time like this. >> absolutely right but the truth is it is a vital technology tool for public safety agencies and health officials worldwide for this crisis. the pandemic has fast-track the testing of drone technology and robots. officials are trying to seek out new ways to limit the contamination and spread of the virus and obviously one of the biggest benefits of drone technology is the standoff distance between the individual pilot and the drone itself and one of the ways we are seeing is used so effectively is in china. one of the ways the chinese government was able to enforce the lockdown so efficiently was
because of this drone technology surveillance network, they had police officers with handheld drones that had speakers attached to them that were able to broadcast messages to the public or monitor areas of large public gathering so we are starting to see the benefits of that when you have drones that can do things right broadcast these messages, create 3-d maps of areas with testing sites, look at problematic areas, you have thermal carries you can attach to these drones to check for elevated body temperature, even a delivery apps in china the ramped up its delivery options to add on drone technology for delivery, the biggest benefit is not only to protect the public but also to protect the first responders putting themselves on the front lines. >> they are being used in so many ways around the world, affecting hospitals and other public spaces, observing
crowds, like you said, identifying, thermal sensing information which is absolutely insane and making a public announcement through loudspeakers, that is around the world. power police department in the united states using drones during the pandemic? >> right now primarily being used to support first responders and police operations. there are some barriers to realizing the potential of drones in the united states because there are regulations in place unlike any other place around the world, you talk about medical professionals, the drone community has to do with the federal aviation administration. a good example of one of the barriers is for years drones have been delivering medical supplies and blood in other parts of the world hundreds of miles away from where the drone launches from. you cannot do that in the us right now because of the regulations in place so you have a lot of drone advocacy
groups going out and trying to advocate for the federal aviation administration to grant waivers, to allow more widespread use of this because you can't legally use it to the same extent we are seeing in countries in europe and the chinese government to protect these public places. rob: a lot of people worried about police officers, first responders getting this virus, not being able to work, 236 nypd officers, that could grow. a drone could come in and police parts of the city. couldn't it? >> that is the point, to augment a lot of these operations and it is not just about flying drones but robots on the ground, a danish company that donated drones to hospitals and what these things
do is emit this ultraviolet light, and they will control the drone from a safe distance and that is the benefit, to support these operations but obviously there is some downside to this surveillance state and use of this technology where you have privacy advocate saying we don't want to fully survey all of our citizens constantly but at the same time there is a balance to maintain where the technology is useful. >> the future is certainly now. we appreciate you always coming on. >> 38 minutes after the archetype mirrors of the us military asked to answer the call once again. >> live for the pentagon's plan with a surge of medical professionals to combat covid-19.
